Howard Amos Shiraz 2021

Rich dark berries, black cherry, blueberry and plum aromas, while also showing hints of spice; a vineyard characteristic. Oak characters also show through, clove, chocolate and vanilla. Delicious intense dark fruits, red cherry, blueberry, blackberry and plum. This wine is well balanced and finishes with silky tannin.

Amos William Howard was born in Hertfordshire England in 1848, arriving in Australia in 1876 where in 1889, he settled in Blakiston in the Adelaide Hills, establishing a nursery producing daffodils, tulips, roses and garden shrubs. On a pleasant summer day in 1889 serendipity occurred. Amos wandered down to see his neighbour Mr Michael Daley to buy a cow. It is rural legend that Mr Daley was delayed so Amos took a walk along the local creek and was attracted by a plant growing along the local creek ‘exhibiting unusual’ habit including growth and prolific nature of reproduction.’ Recognising its potential for Australian ‘Mediterranean’ agriculture Amos commenced a breeding program. Amos became a strong advocate for subterranean clover releasing his first variety in 1906 (Mt Barker).

Through Howard’s foresight, devotion and tireless effort, the value of subterranean clover was firmly established and has become the most important pasture plant in Australia.The contribution of Amos W Howard to Australian agriculture has been recognised in a number of ways including Mt Barker Agricultural Bureau Howard Memorial gates at the Mt Barker Showgrounds and the inclusion sub-clover in the Mt Barker City coat of arms. His name is also immortalised in the local commercial Howard Vineyard and Cellar Door on the site of his discovery.
